TAP® Baseball Training Sock
The TAP™ Baseball Training Sock allows an athlete to throw a ball in a confined space, inside or out. Players can throw regardless of weather conditions or the availability of a training partner. The TAP™ Baseball Training Sock (Junior) is recommended for athletes under the age of 12 or those who have a throwing velocity of less than 50mph.
- Increases velocity
- Promotes good 'finish'
- Good warm-up tool
The TAP™ Baseball Training Sock was developed to facilitate a modified ball hold program. The device's design allows athletes to perform a full throwing motion with ball release in a confined area. The ability to release resolves mechanical inefficiencies associated with holding a weighted ball beyond the release point while enjoying benefits related to baseball holds.
Developed under the guidance of Ron Wolforth and Randy Sullivan, the TAP™ Baseball Training Sock has provided solid results with athlete training and recovery. An excellent tool for developing posterior shoulder strength, it can also be effective for reinforcing efficient deceleration patterns.
The Baseball Training Sock is made of heavy-weight fabric with more of the look of a bag than a sock to allow free movement of the hand releasing the ball. The Baseball Training Sock is also known as the 'Durathro® Sock' and sometimes simply the 'Sock', as well as many other alias's such as the 'Mitt' and even the 'Oven Mitt'. This durable product was developed for weighted balls up to 21oz. Instructions for use are not included.
